I created a custom CRS for a project I am working on. I then started a new project, set to my custom CRS and turn on "on the fly" transformation. I import Rail data that I know is in my custom CRS, and it imports as expected. However when I import Road data from our library that is in a different CRS, this data goes to a totally different area.
I tried the reverse situation. I opened the Road data in a new project, set the CRS to this layer and turn on "on the fly" transformation. When I import the Rail data (which is in my custom CRS) it imports fine.
I would appreciate your guidance on:
- Is it possible to create a project based on a Custom CRS?
- Any tricks/tips when importing data and converting it.
Ultimately I want to import the data I am interested in, convert it to my custom CRS so I can test out some of the grass functions (which I understand needs to be in the same CRS), and use qconsolidate to store it is a separate location.
